Incredible performance by the Pumas. When I saw Creedy in the tunnel before they ran out, I knew they were up for it.

Footage and recaps of the latest RWC 2015 Bans

Not sure why Ford and Gray are appealing. That was ugly and very dangerous. Looks even worse than the Mealamu/O'Driscol assault.

New Zealand run riot to thrash France in Cardiff Quarter Final

In my language we speak of a "snotklap" - a smack that sends the snot flying. This was a snotklap.

South Africa edge Wales in tense Twickenham Quarter Final

Man, that was almost too much for me. 80 minutes of non-stop stress. Will be watching replays of that Fourie du Preez try for many years to come.

Got to hand it to Wales - they really pitched up for this game.

Eben Etzebeth reacts to journalist asking 'Stupid Question' about nickname

It is a bit of a stupid question, and it's poorly phrased. If you're asking a left-field question to someone who doesn't speak English as a first language, then just spit it out straight and simple.

Sean O'Brien cited for punching Pascal Pape in opening minute of Cardiff clash

But on the evidence in these videos, Pape didn't pull him back. If O'Brien claims he did, he can kiss a large chunk of his credibility goodbye. Holding back is very common in rugby these days, but that's not what happened here.

Sean O'Brien cited for punching Pascal Pape in opening minute of Cardiff clash

There's always something going on that we can't see. Every single punch is a retaliation to something else. You have to deal with what you can see, even if it is some kind of on-field justice. You can't decide to overlook a known punch just because there may or may not be a whole series of prior transgressions that led to it.
